Breakfast Success: Egg, Cheese & Ham Bagel

Last night I was determined to follow through on my breakfast menu for today. I was pretty consumed watching playoff hockey, but during intermission I managed, with my wonderful hubby's help, to make the bagel sandwiches.

It worked out great. This morning when I got up I popped one in the microwave for Christian for 40 seconds. While it was heating I cut an orange into wedges and Voila! Breakfast was served.

He gobbled up his sandwich, but never touched his fruit or his milk. Hmmm... I don't want to start the morning out with mommy demanding he eat his fruit so maybe next time I will serve him half a bagel with his fruit to see if he is more inclined to eat the fruit then. :)

And oh, I can't forget about this. I love this little kitchen gadget. It is perfect for frying a perfectly round-shaped egg to fit on a bagel or an english muffin. Yes, it's the little things in life that make me happy. :)

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw

I saw this recipe and knew that we had to try it!  Actually, this recipe was my inspiration behind having an Asian-inspired BBQ meal.  The idea of mango in my slaw felt very summery to me and it was a great way to have a BBQ side without the calories of our typical mayo-based salads.

It was a pretty simple dish to make.  Below, you'll see everything tossed in the bowl.  FYI, I shredded the cabbage with a knife and the carrot with a box shredder. 

The marinade called for rice vinegar (which I didn't have), but I had just learned that I could sub with white wine vinegar. Mixed it all up and threw in some sesame seeds and it was ready.  I put it in the fridge for a few hours, but I could've just given it 15 minutes to let the flavors marinade a little.
